A round over glaze enameled porcelain box with an imperial five-clawed dragon with blossoming peony flower motif that bears a commemorative six character Qianlong mark on the base.

A round porcelain base with matching and well fitted porcelain top has been painted with over glaze enamels. A rondel on the lid depicts a ferocious five-clawed dragon in iron red on a turquoise background. The dragon is surrounded by peony flowers and foliage scrolling on a yellow ground. This is matched on the base with three imperial five-clawed dragons and peony flowers placed equidistant from each other. There are matching key fret borders with bands of gilding on the rim and the base. There is sea wave border above an unglazed raised foot. The glazes feel smooth and thick. The box has a nice weight to it.

There is a hand painted six-character Qianlong mark in the center of the glazed base.
